Regional District: Columbia-Shuswap
Salmon Arm is a growing city of 17,706 in British Columbia’s interior. We are located on Shuswap Lake, midway between Calgary and Vancouver on the TransCanada Highway.
The Shuswap is named after the Shuswap First Nations – The Secwepemc – an important Salish Nation comprised of 17 Bands, whose ancestors lived in South-Central British Columbia. Today, four First Nations bands live in the Shuswap region: the Adams Lake Indian Band, Neskonlith Indian Band, Splatsin First Nation and Little Shuswap Indian Band.
Salmon Arm has all the amenities you are looking for. With exceptional healthcare and education facilities, expansive arts and culture events, twin-sheet arena and pool, hundreds of kilometres of trails, golf courses, and of course lake sports, there is something for everyone! The City also boasts a unique picturesque downtown which draws tourists from around the world. Salmon Arm’s cost of living is notably lower than other cities, particularly in the categories of shelter, entertainment and household goods.
Access to markets is among the City’s many competitive advantages as we can provide ready-access to provincial, national and international marketplaces. People, products and services are easily moved into and out of Salmon Arm via the TransCanada Highway, CP Rail, Shuswap Regional Airport, nearby Kelowna International Airport, proximity to the Port of Vancouver and several United States border crossings.
The City’s exceptional quality of life has supported the attraction of world-class companies and a highly skilled workforce. The diverse and growing economy includes strong clusters of commerce and business services, retail, health, tourism, agriculture and manufacturing. With hundreds of state-of-the-art operations, our businesses can provide the solution you are looking for. Salmon Arm’s dedicated industrial park is home to over 80 manufacturing firms and our regional airport. There are available industrial and commercial development properties to support new business establishments – at a price point well below larger western Canadian cities.
